In alternating chapters, Martin's parents tell of their son's tragically foreshortened life. They provide insights into the cruel unresponsiveness of the police and hostility of the legal system, and describe their efforts to bring meaning, redemption and justice to his short life. Their voices launched a movement that would change the nation.
An intimate portrait of Trayvon Martin shares previously untold insights into the movement he inspired from the perspectives of his parents, who also describe their efforts to bring meaning to his short life through the movement's pursuit of redemption and justice.
